Recently at an exercise in the Willamette NF, Salem Fire Dept SWAT Medic Clint Wagoner checks in with command after completing an objective.
As much as I like photographing landscapes, abstracts, etc., I also enjoy a quick pic around work when I have a free moment. Such is the case with Ladder 11 here. Even though she's a reserve now, this 105' Pierce aerial still has it. I'm hopeful that someday we'll be able to re-open this West Salem fire station.
I spent my Thursday helping out the Salem Police Department's SWAT team with their training exercise in the Wilamette National Forest. Here are two Salem Fire Dept SWAT Medics, Dave Brown (c) and Luke Barr (r), along with a Life Flight crew member, as they prepare to transport an officer who was "wounded".
